present native flavours in an elevated & reverently artistic manner. share australian produce on a global scale.
and... elevate the perception of australian native produce
in 2013, we began unico zelo at our first location in lobethal, moving to the old gumeracha coldstores in 2014 and launching applewood distillery gin soon after in 2015. we gradually renovated the old coldstores and in mid-2017, opened the applewood distillery bar. We have since established harvest social cantina, carter’s coffee liqueur and økar island bitter.
we hope we can assist a disconnected world to reestablish a curiosity and adoration for the land we all collectively belong to, via the sharing of drinks crafted of the land with food, family and friends - building a global community in the process.
applewood distillery is a certified b-corporation, dedicated to being held to the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability. a business as a force of good.
